Experience a trip of a lifetime as you embark on an adventure to iconic Sydney, Australia seeing famous landmarks and city before heading to soak up paradise in the Cook Islands.

When you first set your eyes on Sydney's stunning harbour you'll be left pinching yourself at the picture-perfect backdrop. Get up close and personal with the Sydney Opera House and marvel at the architecture and materials that makes this mesmerizing landmark, and head inside for a tour. Take a stroll around the colourful Royal Botanic Gardens with their outstanding collection of exotic plants.

West of Sydney you will discover dramatic beauty and walking trails in the Blue Mountains. Named because of the blue mist that rises from the forests of eucalyptus after the old blends with the sunlight, these mountains boast vertical cliff drops and waterfalls to be explored. There are hundreds of trails to adventure down where you can spot an abundance of wildlife, craggy peaks and cavernous gorges.

Follow on from this adventure to the luxurious beauty of the Cook Islands. Relax and soak up the warm rays as you marvel at the island paradise views that surround you. Cool off in the crystal clear waters and go on a snorkelling tour to seek sharks, rays, exotic fish and colourful corals. Compliment your beach stay by boarding a boat to explore the inner lagoon of Rarotonga and enjoy a barbecue on the beach with freshly caught fish and a chance to beach-comb and relax.
